Former MLB All-Star Roy Halladay dies in plane crash

By Michael Dixon

Roy Halladay — who won Cy Young Awards as a member of the Toronto Blue Jays and Philadelphia Phillies — died on Tuesday when his plane crashed into the Gulf of Mexico. He was 40.

The Pasco Sheriff’s Office in West Central Florida shared the tragic news on Tuesday.

Halladay’s Twitter page was filled with pictures of himself flying the plane.

Halladay pitched for the Blue Jays from 1998-2009 and the Phillies from 2010-2013. He won the 2003 American League Cy Young and the 2010 National League Cy Young. He was an eight-time All-Star and pitched a perfect game during the 2010 season. In that postseason, Halladay threw a no-hitter, becoming only the second person in MLB history to do that during the postseason.
